    Hello from Ohio!

    Hello everyone,

    I just started hanging this past summer during a 4 day hiking trip in the Porcupine Mountains in the Upper Peninsula of MI. It was fantastic. I'll never go back to sleeping on the ground again if I don't have to. Anyone else here from NE Ohio? I thought I'd add a picture from the trip. We camped right on Lake Superior. My setup is a ENO DoubleNest with a Jacks-R-Better Cat Tarp. Worked like a charm. I'm really looking forward to learning to make my own gear!

    Hi! and welcome to the Forum!

    I'm from Western PA... hopefully we'll get enough folks together for an Ohio/Pennsylvania hang in the not-too-distant-future.

    There's a lot of great advice here, and people have been wonderful about sharing info.

    You've got a great looking camp there!
